That should be possible. But then, that depends on how Xorg is setting up and using the Hal D-Bus interface, e.g. if it uses dbus_bus_start_service_by_name() or a Ping() to auto-start hal. I don't know the Xorg code, so I can't tell. Michael -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
